Lovely room. Huge bed. Clean. Spacious. Helpful staff. Secure. Great Wifi. Hard to fault tho obviously this is American style and for comfort and convenience, not a Costa Rica experience.

We stayed here the night before our early morning flight to return home after our 3 wk visit to CR and we couldnt be happier with our stay. We booked via expedia and received exactly what we booked - King size studio Room #210. The room was very clean, very comfortable. It had a flat screen tv w many channels... More

Reliability is important when travelling on business and no surprises. This Hampton property is well located, literally seconds from the airport terminal. On you arrival at SJO, look for the Hampton Inn rep at the curb outside arrivals and he will radio the van. Standard roomy accommodations and facilities that you would expect, and a good breakfast buffet which included... More

For a "Gringo" it is wonderful to return from the Costa Rican jungle to this luxe hotel and to enjoy a clean, warm shower, a clean and soft bed, and a breakfast buffet that encompasses a LOT more than just rice and beans!! Friendly staff, good shuttle service.

We stayed here on the last night of our Costa Rican trip, due to an early morning flight and long drive from the other hotel. The hotel felt like every other Hampton Inn - convenient and a little lacking in character. Breakfast in the morning was decent, an interesting mix between Costa Rican favorites like Gallo de Pinto and American... More

Great hotel for before or after a flight into San Jose Airport. Walking distance to several car rental places. Very friendly staff and clean basic rooms. Convenient shuttle service from airport to hotel. Definitely eat at the chicken restaurant that the hotel recommends. Worth it and short walk across parking lot. The hearty breakfast was a plus.

This place is handy to the airport........no other reason to stay in this area. It was clean and we appreciated the coffee bar and buffet breakfast. The front desk clerks were helpful and pleasant. We stayed one night after arriving in the early evening from the USA and it served our purposes perfectly, although next time - knowing now what... More

Stayed here at the beginning and end of our trip. Clean, well maintained hotel. Excellent breakfast buffet, and if you are on the go, you can get it to go as well. Try the rostopollo restaurant next door, (for Canadians, the Costa rican version of Swiss Chalet!) Shuttle to airport very handy, and the staff are cordial, and provided basic... More

This was our first trip to Costa Rica, and we arrived late at night. It was nice that the shuttle was just ouside the exit at the airport and we were at the hotel in just a few minutes. Breakfast was nice and included. They also gave us a little paper bag lunch that came in handy for our travel... More

I stayed there twice. once at the beginning of my trip and once at the end. Finding the free shuttle turned out to be pretty easy even though there's a swarm of taxi drivers once you leave the terminal. The shuttle picks up up right across from the terminal exit and both times a "spotter" saw I didn't need a... More
